No Potato Famine Here!

Yesterday morning after morning chores were complete,
I decided to stop by the garden to pick some produce.


I had a little extra time on my hands and started weeding the potato box...
and realized that the potatoes were ready for digging.


So, Hubbs grabbed a shovel and we started to dig...


By the time we were done we had harvested about 30 pounds of potatoes.


Amazingly... all of these potatoes came from just two seed potatoes...
a big reward from a small investment!


They are now drying in a cool, dark part of the barn.

You might remember me talking about the milkweed that I left growing in the garden
in front of our house.
Well, I was rewarded for the decision to let it grow!

Hopefully we will have eggs laid somewhere on the plants...
I'll keep you updated if I see any signs of reproduction.


Well, we are again at the end of another week.
The weekend is to be rainy... 
so it looks like we got through yet another week without having to water!
Tyler will be spending today and tomorrow here at the farm...
so our days will be filled with adventure.

Hope your weekend is filled with adventure as well!!
Hugs from the farm (because we need more hugs in this...
